Short driving distance to lots of great neighborhoods and restaurants. Had an awesome time with my girlfriends. Would recommend to anyone wanting to save a little money and stay somewhere comfortable...

This property is gorgeous right on the water, with 2 pools, hot tub, restaurant, casual deli and really fun Tiki Bar there are not many reasons to leave. However if you do want to venture off location the hotel is ideally between all the shopping and dining of Downtown St. Pete as well as the beautiful St. Pete beaches. So...
